If your baby is in a breech presentation during pregnancy, a moment will come when the midwife or the gynecologist will propose to turn the baby. A turn baby in breech will only be done if you want this yourself. Of course you can also opt for a Caesarean section, but you should not think too lightly about that because Caesarean sections also have disadvantages. Have you ever wondered how a baby in breech presentation looks like? Then view the close-up video below.
Turning a baby's video into breech
A quarter of all babies are still in breech presentation around the thirtieth week of pregnancy. This is not something you need to be worried about because up to 36 weeks of pregnancy, babies are still turning to a head position on their own. Still, it happens that your baby does not turn on its own and then the external turning (external version) can be a solution. The external turning of a baby in breech remains something very special to see. Yet?
Conditions for a baby to rotate in breech presentation
You might think that one of the conditions for turning the baby is the size of the baby, but that does not seem to be the case. However, there are other conditions that need to be checked before deciding to turn a baby into a breech presentation. Therefore, an echo is always made first to check the following:
- It is excluded that there are no birth defects such as a water head or an open back.
- If the baby is lying backwards with the head, the baby is not turned either.
- Another reason for not turning the baby is when the placenta is in front of the exit, also known as previa. Then a caesarean is necessary because a natural delivery can not be done.
- If there is too little amniotic fluid, it is also decided not to turn the baby
The above reasons not to start a breech presentation are fortunately never so common. Is your baby still in breech presentation at the end of pregnancy than that is usually just bad luck.
Stomach inhibitors could be used to facilitate the baby's turning. As a result, the abdomen does not become as hard as it is touched. Cure inhibitors ensure that the uterus remains supple and more relaxed.
